The Power of Local Hydro

April 12, 2018

Local hydro companies are driving innovation for a smarter, cleaner future.

As more Ontarians plug electric cars into the grid or choose to generate their own electricity through solar and wind, the way local hydro companies distribute power to customers is evolving rapidly. Across Ontario, local hydro utilities are meeting changing customer demands by offering new innovative services that provide more value, added convenience and greater control over energy use.

To facilitate these new opportunities for customers, the Electricity Distributors Association is advocating for policies that consider five key principles:

  1. Keeping the customer first
  2. Driving local hydro innovation forward
  3. Improving the regulatory framework
  4. Respecting community decision-making
  5. Expanding local energy conservation
